A New Jersey family was shaken up by a rather odd discovery in their daughter’s vacant bedroom. Jason Hubbard, a struggle burglar and former boyfriend of the daughter, was found living under her bed by the owner of the home and stealing electricity to charge a number of phones.
WABC-TV in New York issued an exclusive report about the case, which unfolded last May in Spotswood, N.J., which is around one hour away from New York. Hubbard supposedly broke into the Adamcewicz’s home in early May and existed on nothing but water according to the husband. Margaret Adamcewicz exclusively spoke with WABC-TV, and offered her take on the matter.
Upon arrival, officers came in contact with Hubbard in the home. Police subsequently placed him under arrest for criminal trespass.
“He was hiding upstairs underneath the bed, in my daughter’s bedroom,” Margaret Adamcewicz said. “He used to date my daughter five years ago…It didn’t end well…He didn’t say why he came back. He just picked our house to hide out in. He didn’t have a home to live in.”
Further investigation revealed that Hubbard entered the home through an open door when one resident was taking out the garbage. After entering the house, he proceeded into the spare bedroom, where he stayed under the bed for days. He also began charging his four cell phones utilizing an electric outlet under the bed.
“I haven’t heard from him in five years,” Margaret said. “I wasn’t scared, I was just angry.”
The husband found Hubbard after hearing a noise, and then called 911. The couple’s 28-year-old son cornered Hubbard until police arrived to take him away.
Hubbard is facing charges of burglary and theft of services (electricity). The struggle, indeed.
